WILLIAM E. SATTERFIELD v. STATE OF MARYLAND

Criminal procedure — Motion to suppress evidence — Other crimes evidence

Appellant William E. Satterfield was arrested and charged on suspicion of sexual abuse of his daughter, “K.”1 Following a one-day trial, a jury in the Circuit Court for Queen Anne’s County convicted Satterfield of two counts of sexual abuse of a minor. The court sentenced Satterfield to a total of ten years in prison: 25 years, all but ten of those years suspended, for one count; and a consecutive, suspended sentence of fifteen years for the second count. Satterfield took a timely appeal to this Court.
